    I'm surprised they didn't mention Family Guy in there anywhere.

    Yeah really... Family Guy is the biggest success story for a tv series on DVD.

    I completely forgot about Family Guy. Yeah, it is kind of weird that they didn't mention it since its clearly benefitted from its cancellation; becoming popular on DVD and is in the process of being revived for TV.

    The article also overlooks The Ben Stiller Show, which came out on DVD around the same time as The Tick and Firefly and also features unaired episodes after an early cancellation.

    I am glad they mentioned the show Miracles. I really enjoyed the show and I am very disappointed not to be able to see the remaining 7 episodes.

    Maybe there should be a one-season rule or something.

    The people who work against shows like "Miracles", were they not there when the show was pitched? Did they not invest in it in the first place? Or were they planning from the start to pressure the writers and the producers into changing the way the story would devellop, just like the people at fox did to Firefly.

    Oh well... too bad fans can't produce episodes. You know, with paypall or something. I guess the credits would run on forever. [​IMG]

    shameless plug but

    guys check out miraclestv.com and miracleshq.com
    the creator of miracles, richard hatem is in touch with the fans

    i really wish another network would pick up miracles and air it continuously and give it a chance to find an audience

    i managed to see the unaired eps and simply put, they were brilliant..the ending was really amazing too..

    I wish Undeclared would be released on DVD. That show was genious, so of course Fox had to cancel it.

    This article implies The Tick is coming out on DVD. That true? Animated or live action version?

    Never mind, I found it.
